Leaving a real, lasting legacy in Winnipeg.

On Thursday, April 16, 2015, United Way of Winnipeg hosted a luncheon to celebrate and recognize the many generous and visionary friends who have supported our community through the Tomorrow Fund, United Way’s endowment—specifically, individuals who have named United Way as a beneficiary in their estate plans.

President and CEO Connie Walker shared with the group her vision about the past, present and future of United Way of Winnipeg, which in the year of United Way’s 50th anniversary, takes a special meaning.

United Way Endowment Fund Legacy Lunch 2015

A donor for 50 years, 96 year-old Sam Fabro, C.M. and United Way President Connie Walker chat about past, present and future at the annual Tomorrow Fund Legacy Circle Lunch.

The Tomorrow Fund, whose value currently stands at $12 Million, includes investments made by founders like George T. Richardson (The George and Tannis Richardson Fund) and William Palk (The William Lawrence Palk Family Fund), United Way’s first ever campaign chair. Each year, investment income from the Tomorrow Fund helps support an essential network of more than 100 agencies, partners and programs.

Organizers hope it will be the first of many such events.
